I have a cisco 2500 router and a 1900 switch, I am also use a Cayman Netopia router for my DSL connection. I'm going to use Windows 2000 AdvServ2000 DHCP to route ip's internally and wanted to know the best connection for my modem/cisco router?? so that my workers can get onto the internet and also could I create a connection on the cisco to my home network cable modem as well.

It sounds like you have one modem too many.  At least for what you want to do.  All you really need to do is setup the 1900 switch off the DSL router with your server and workstations on it.  You can setup ICS through the server.  

The DSL router should pretty much be plug & play unless you may need to allow connections to specific PC's or VPN setup.  I guess you could use the Cisco router b/tw the DSL router and the switch but that would cause more trouble than it is worth.  Unless you have a DSL port or card setup for the 2500 then you would not be able to use it as the incoming router.

Good Luck!

I have the cisco equipment in my studio and the dlink at home. I wanted to know could I use the cisco 2500 and add the ip of the dlink and use it as a wan connection btween them. My home setup is on cable modem and works fine using win2000 DHCP. I am going to use the cisco in my studio connected thru DSL modem and win2k server dhcp to do the same.

I want to know if I can create a remote wan connection using the cisco router by adding a static route in it to find my dlink setup which is using ip 167.200.1.xxx while my cisco will have ip 192.168.8.xxx

If you are attempting to establish some type of remote connection you need some type of authentication such as with a VPN. I don't believe that your DLink supports end point VPNs although the Cisco does. Now your client workstations on the DLink lan on the other hand, can be configured to make a VPN connection and terminate them on the Cisco router. There is a software client for Cisco that allows this although that is for one workstation, not a lan to lan tunnel. Identify if you need router to router connectivity or just a client from one lan accessing another lan. That is a much more viable solution.

I am attempting to do router to router setup. I have upgrded my cable to a static gateway and my dsl already has a static gateway so I figure Im good to go with that so far. I have also decided that I'm going to use a pix 501 for vpn and firewall protection but I also have checkpoint firewwall vpn.

I was wondering if both could get along together or should I put the pix on at my office and use the checkpoint at my home??. But I am looking to setup the cable gateway on the cisco router so that I can be at home and vpn into my office server etc.

I would place the PIX at whatever site has better connectivity. (I am assuming the office). You could then terminate your VPN on it with the Cisco router to the PIX. They both support firewall through the IOS. That should not be a problem. Thus you can work from home and access your office lan. This should work well enough. In a perfect world I would recommend utilizing the same ISP for both sites to help with your network VPN traffic.
